    I have just re-installed win2000 (incSP4) on my computer and it will not let
    me do updates. I go to update site, it installs Activex control, then it get
    an Error number: 0x800C0002 appearing in the top right hand corner.
    I can't find any help using Google or Microsoft, there are solutions for XP
    etc but not Win2000.
    Any help would be appreicated.

  3. Why did you reinstall Win2000? Is IE6 installed now? Had IE6 been
    installed and did you uninstall it before you reinstalled Windows?

    Have you examined C:\\WINNT\WindowsUpdate.log ? A simple Google search
    indicates that such an error is usually the result of ZoneAlarm or other
    3rd-party security software.

    Here's what you do:
    1. go to Google.com
    2. Search for "Internet Explorer 6" without the ""
    3. Click on "Download Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1"
    4. Click on the "Download Center" link on the page
    5. Select your Internet Connection Speed (Dial-Up to T1)
    6. Select your language
    7. Click Download
    8. Save the file to the Desktop
    9. Double-click on the ie6setup.exe file
    10. Follow the instructions
    11. Reboot your computer
    12. go to Internet Explorer
    13. go to windowsupdate.com
    If no error persist, go to Step 14
    If there's a problem, re-install the OS
    14. Click Install Now (Active X Control needed)
    15. Select the updates (highly recommend all of them)
    Do not select the Direct X 9.0c or Windows Media Player 9 updates until you finish updating the computer (use Google.com and search for these two programs and install them before updating the system

    However, there are certain sites that require the latest Internet Explorer, and I would recommend Fire Fox 3.5.6 as a primary Web Browser.

    don't you just love it when people ask questions and offere opinions that are
    none of their damn business? people will explain the issue and some ignorant
    ass will come along and offer up an unwelcome compliment when they have no
    understanding of the background or political situation of your environment.
    just answer the effin question and offer a solution.

  7. Are you trying to imply that you think the question has been sufficiently
    answered in the original newsgroup?

    BTW good luck to the OP trying to find it again using the MS Communities web
    interface. The search index there is FUBAR. In order to find this I had to
    back up to about the date that the cross-post began which (fortunately) was
    about the date that the original thread began. So I agree with the other
    responders suggestions to use Google to find previous discussions or
    information about the subject code.

    In fact, it looks like BING could provide a pretty good answer too, using
    just the code and minimal context:

  8. No, I think he's implying that we're supposed to know the answer without having
    to ask any questions about the context in which the problem occurred. He
    probably hasn't heard that MS withdrew our crystal-ball privileges as part of
    their latest cost-cutting measures.
